Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A review of the land parcels declared by the person named under the 2013 Single Payment Scheme revealed that several of the land parcels declared by the person named contained ineligible features. As the person named sought a review of my Department’s decision, a visit by a Department official to verify the position on the ground was necessary to progress the matter. This verification visit was conducted, the file is being processed and person named will be informed of the outcome of his appeal, in writing, as soon as possible.
